Silane, a compound of silicon and hydrogen, is a general term for this series of compounds, including monosilane (SiH4), disilane (Si2H6) and some higher-order silicon-hydrogen compounds, with the general formula SinH2n+2. Monosilane is the most common, and is sometimes referred to simply as silane. Silane is an important chemical raw material. It can synthesize high-purity crystalline silicon, silicon nitride and silicon oxide. It is widely used in the electronics industry, semiconductor industry, fine chemical industry and chemical industry.

Wide application

  • Semiconductor industry

Silane is commonly used in the synthesis of ultrapure semiconductor silicon, which is widely used in computer chips, silicon devices, silicon integrated circuits, displays, solar energy, ceramic processing and sensor industries. Microelectronics applications of silane are still developing in depth: low temperature epitaxy, selective epitaxy, and heteroepitaxy.

  • Ceramic industry

Silane can be used to develop silicon, silicon nitride and silicon carbide, and can be used to produce high-performance ceramics and automotive ceramic parts.

  • Fine chemicals and consumer goods industry

Based on silane, a series of silicon-containing compounds such as monocrystalline silicon, polycrystalline silicon, amorphous silicon, metal silicide, and silicon nitride can be prepared. Therefore, the synthesis of silicides into complex and fine structures is the basic condition for modern special materials and devices.

  • Other industry

The application of silanes as silicon-containing films has expanded from the traditional microelectronics industry to other industries, such as the steel industry, chemical production and optical industries.
